Men are better informed.

Public Knowledge of Current Affairs Little Changed by News and Information Revolutions

Men, on average, knew more than women, all other factors being equal.

Why don’t women write many good op-eds?

Paul Newman put his finger on it when he said: In our family I make all the big decisions like what the official Newman Family stance is on nuclear disarmament, while my wife makes all the little decisions, like where we’ll live and where’ll we send our kids to school.

Women are simply, on average, more practical than men. They aren’t as interested in big issues where they are unlikely to have much impact. They are more interested in how to improve their own lives and those of the people they care about….

The median woman’s life is simply more important from a Darwinian perspective than the median man’s life because women are the limiting resource in reproduction, so they can’t afford to waste their lives on disinterested interests, like all those guys who submit op-eds to Dahlia Lithwick about, say, the Lebanese situation even though, in practical sense, Lebanon is irrelevant to their lives.

Very true. And it’s another reason that women shouldn’t be permitted to have a say in things like nuclear disarmament and Lebanon. With rare exceptions, they just aren’t qualified to judge these matters.

    Women are interested in relationships with their group. If it doesn’t directly affect their group they typically don’t give a shit.
